They Like Me, They Really Like Me - Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

It's been five blog years in the making and I must still capture the attention of y'all.  Or at least some of you.  And, for that, I thank you.

Because, although a person can carry on a blog, it's not any fun if people don't recognize it exists. 

Military Wife & Pug Life recently recognized said existence with an award.  She nominated me to receive a Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.  The rules of the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award are to 1) thank the person who nominated you 2) answer 10 getting to know me questions asked by the person who nominated you; 3) nominate 10 more bloggers by asking your own 10 questions.  I've done a few of these in the past but it's been a while.

For the first part of the award, I'd like to thank Military Wife & Pug Life.  I stumbled across her blog one day within the past couple of months and have been a faithful reader ever since.  Her Lifetime movie recaps are AmazeBalls and her humor almost makes me pee my pants. 

And, now, here are the questions she's asked me to answer:

1) What is one trend, beauty or fashion, you cannot stand?

Honestly, I'm one of the most unfashionable people out there.  I wouldn't know a trend (good, bad, or otherwise) if it hit me in the head.  I wear what I want when I want, and don't pay much mind to what other people choose to put on their bodies.  To each their own.

2) If you could remove all the fat and calories from any food, what would it be and why?

I'd have to go with pasta.  Because I'd love to be able to stuff my face in a big bowl of noodles every day and not think about how many extra miles I'm going to have to jog to burn off the calories. (Who am I kidding, I don't jog.)


3) What famous person makes you want to puke?

Kanye West is a doo-doo head and his opinions bore me.  His ego is inflated and his common sense is nonexistent. 

 4) What song do you sing (loudly) and dance (obnoxiously) to when you are by yourself?

I can't carry a tune in a bucket but will sing loudly and dance obnoxiously whether I'm by myself or with a crowd of people.  I'm an equal opportunity embarrasser. 

5) What was your favorite Halloween costume you ever wore?

I've had this particular costume for a few years now and it seems to be my go-to. 
 6) If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do?
I'd go around stealing people's pasta off their plates.  
7) What is the stupidest excuse you've ever used to get out doing something? And did it work?
I used to have a good friend who was exceptional in most ways but would try to get me involved in her affairs (literally).  She wanted me to give her sugar daddy a call and find out why he wasn't answering her advances as of late.  I wanted no part of it and tried to tell her so but she was a pushy thing.  So I made up some excuse that I was out of town and super busy so I didn't have time to be making phone calls.  Being the creeper that she was, she showed up at my house!  I had to put on my persistent panties and break it to her that I wanted no part of her nonsense. 
 8) What is something that truly grosses you out?
Gristle or fat from meat makes me physically ill.  If I accidentally swallow a piece, my gag reflexes go into overdrive.   
9) Have you ever re-gifted a gift? What was it and who did you give it to?
I'm guilty as charged.  It's rare that I re-gift but will do so if I feel like someone else would appreciate the present more than I do. 
10) If you could go back in time and tell your teenage self anything, what would it be and why?
I'd tell my teenage self that no guy is worth being in an abusive relationship.  I'd tell myself to grow a set of gonads and stick up for myself.
I'm totally not trying to be a cop-out but I'm not going to award anyone in particular with the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.  There are quite a few who are worthy.  Instead, I'd love for you to respond with your answers to any of these questions.  Enquiring minds want to know!

I loveeeee your answers!! Especially about the friend and the sugar daddy! That should be a Lifetime movie! Lol. Also about stealing people's food; Maddie loves that answer. ;)

Loved Military Wife's questions!! I totally agree with you about Kanye West!! UGH!! And love your costume!!

Not going to answer them all cause Lord knows I'm too busy shopping on Etsy to do that, but here's a few of my favorites:

1. The fashion trend I cannot understand and hate is expensive designer purses. If you spend thousands of dollars on a purse I don't envy you or think "Wow! How rich and fashionable she is!" I think "Wow! You have more money than sense!" It is a PURSE. It holds a cell phone, some tampons, and gum. It should not have to be financed.

2. Milk chocolate and white chocolate should have no fat or calories because then I would not be overweight. I would probably be UNDERweight.

6. If I were invisible for a day I would sneak into my daughter's school and see what really goes on there when the staff doesn't know they are being watched!

8. Silverfish *shudder* I have cried after being surprised by a particularly large one in my bathtub, and I am not a crier....

9. Regifting is ecofriendly! The phrase should be reduced, reuse, recycle, regift! Why keep something you think someone else could use and appreciate more?

I'm totally with you on the pasta thing. Why can't it be calorie free?
